Learning to Trust

Oct 9, 2015


I’ve struggled for years with trust. Trusting people, trusting promises, trusting God. It’s as if I always expect for the rain to come, even in the good times. Even though I know that God has seen me through some dark tunnels, and even though I know I am better for them, others around me are better for them, I still dread those hard times. During the times of sunshine, I’m always gazing at the horizon anticipating the rain cloud.


I know exactly where this lack of trust comes from. It is learned over years spent living in fear. Years spent having the rug ripped out from under me. But I don’t want to live with the past constantly haunting me. I don’t want to live in it’s shadow. I want to learn to trust. 

To take God as His word and know that because He has seen me through my past, He’s got my future, too. Because He is a God who keeps His promises and never changes, He is worthy of my trust.

Letting go…

I’m going to begin participating in Five Minute Friday over on Kate’s blog to give myself a little break from my regular writing on overacup.org.  Five Minute Friday is writing for five minutes no stopping no editing. If you’d like to read more posts on the word Trust , come join us on Kate’s blog. We’d love to have you! 

Do you find it hard to study the Bible?

It doesn’t have to be.

Let me help you learn a technique for studying that makes it simple. Join me as we study one chapter each week and memorize two verses of scripture each month.

You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes in your life.

    That’s right… He has seen us through our past, He is here in our present and He has our future in His good hands! Thanks for good thoughts! (Stopping by from FMF)

      Thank you for your kind words and visiting from FMF, Rachel! Seeing Him in my past is sometimes the only way I trust Him for the future.
